The Australian cricket team are in Southampton ahead of their limited overs series against England. The players currently reside in a bio-secured bubble, and while it is difficult for someone to remain locked in a confined space for a long time, the players are surrounded by a lot of entertainment. Cricket Australia shared a video on Sunday showing what the players have been up to, including dancing in the gym and driving in high-octane races on a Formula 1 simulator.

The start of the video features Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis and Adam Zampa shaking a leg in the gym.
All-rounder Stoinis says of the video: “All boys are doing well.”
“The fact that you can’t leave the hotel forces all the guys to hang out a lot more, so we just have matches with each other,” added Stoinis.
“There is golf starting today for some of the guys, so it helps the chatter and keeps the competitive juices flowing,” said Stoinis.
“There’s the F1 simulator. It’s pretty good, but it’s not that easy. We have table tennis, we have pool, we have darts, the gym around the corner – it feels like we have it all,” said Stoinis.
“All the boys have their PlayStations, so that’s what keeps us busy,” he concluded.
Australia will compete against the hosts in three T20 Internationals (T20Is) starting September 4. The two teams will play a three-game ODI series starting September 11.
